Our database of surnames and villages
We’ve been fortunate to work with so many people. When we reflect on all the research we’ve done, it reminds us of how many new friends we’ve made and villages we’ve visited.
We’ve compiled over 1,600 surnames and over 180 villages that we’ve explored through our genealogy research work and made it available as a resource to help you get started in your own family research.
